make_sockdfr - Generates frozen route file for SOCKS server
make_sockdfr [infile [outfile] ]
make_sockdfr reads in a plain-text route file for the SOCKS server and
produces a frozen route file as the output.
Both arguments are optional. The default for infile is
/etc/sockd.route; the default for outfile is /etc/sockd.fr. You may
specify infile while omitting outfile, but you cannot specify outfile
without also speficying infile.
The contents of the frozen route file is essentially the memory image
of the parsed input file. Using the frozen route file can reduce the
start-up delay of the SOCKS server program since it no longer has to
parse the file contents.
When the SOCKS server starts, it always looks for the frozen route file
/etc/sockd.fr first. If that file is not found, it then tries to use
the plain-text route file /etc/sockd.route. If you use frozen route
file, you must remember to run make_sockdfr every time after you modify
the plain-text file or the SOCKS server will continue to use the frozen
version of a previous route file.
To find out the contents of a frozen route file, use dump_sockdfr.
